Aerospike Inc., the global leader in next-generation, real-time NoSQL data solutions, today announced the release of the Aerospike Kubernetes Operator and advancements in Aerospike Cloud Managed Service to help enterprises unlock cloud productivity and agility with scale-out cloud data.
Enterprises are increasingly tasked with delivering superior customer experience by leveraging cloud-native architectures that scale elastically and update continuously. For many companies this is not a simple task – they must address significant complexities during the initial build and provide maintenance across siloed cloud footprints. Automation is essential to operate and scale cloud-native services with predictable performance. Helping to address these challenges are Operators, a method of deploying and managing Kubernetes applications.
The Aerospike Kubernetes Operator provides an innovative new controller that manages a Custom Resource Definition to extend the Kubernetes API for Aerospike clusters. It automates the management of common Aerospike database tasks such as the configuration, provisioning, scaling, and recovery of Aerospike clusters, thereby reducing the complexity of manual deployment and life cycle management. The Operator is currently supported on Kubernetes, Amazon EKS, Google GKE, and Microsoft AKS, and is in the process of certification on Red Hat OpenShift.
“As enterprises move applications to the cloud with increasing speed, Aerospike is streamlining and automating operations of its next-generation NoSQL platform,” says Geoff Clark, general manager EMEA, Aerospike. Today’s announcement of Aerospike Kubernetes Operators ensures that enterprises can remove the cluster maintenance that’s typically required for cloud deployments.”
Unlocking Business Agility with Aerospike’s Cloud Managed Service
Companies around the world are increasingly making the Aerospike Cloud Managed Service a cornerstone of their digital transformation strategy to accelerate the release of new features and large-scale cloud applications.

Over the past year, the company has forged many new partnerships to improve business agility and accelerate time to market.
“As a cutting-edge digital local advertising platform, we need to provide real-time banner and campaign data to get best-in-class results for our customers,” said Maik Kühn, Chief Technology Officer, Factor Eleven GmbH. “Aerospike Cloud Managed Service on AWS helps us accelerate our time to market with a safe, convenient and frictionless customer experience. In the near future, we look forward to adding and leveraging previously archived campaigns from other technologies into our Aerospike Cloud Managed Service deployment to help us support our customers even better.”
Unified billing on the AWS Marketplace
The AWS Marketplace continues to grow in popularity, and recently began providing its customers with Seller Private Offers. Aerospike has partnered with AWS to make its fully managed cloud service available as a Private Offer on the marketplace, allowing customers to leverage pre-allocated cloud budgets, consolidate billing with unified billing, and negotiate multi-year discounts.
“With AWS Marketplace, customers can easily procure Aerospike’s Cloud Managed Service, a proven solution designed to accelerate the release of new features and applications faster by leveraging the full breadth and depth of AWS services,” said Kamlesh Talreja, General Manager, AWS Marketplace, AWS.
